Condoms and other birth control methods fail and cannot guarantee that your girlfriend will not become pregnant.
There are some questions a guy needs to ask himself before becoming sexually active.
- If your girlfriend became pregnant would you leave her?
- Are you ready to support a child with your time, energy and money for at least the next 18 years?
- Will you go with your girlfriend to tell her parents the news?
- Are you willing to give your child a two-parent family?
- Know that you have no legal say in the choice your girlfriend makes with the baby. She may decide to keep the baby or to have an abortion…in either case are you prepared to live with that decision for the rest of your life?
- Would you be willing to release your child for an adoption?
- Are you willing to learn all about abortion so that you can anticipate possible medical complications and possible relationship problems?
